You must appear in Court on the date and time indicated at the bottom of the ticket. If you plead "Not Guilty" at that time a trial date will be set for you at a later date, usually the following month. Trials are held one evening per month at 6 p.m. The officer is required to appear for the trial date.
Continuances must be arranged and approved by the Court at least 5 days before your scheduled Court date. Defendants must contact the Court in writing or by mail. You are allowed one continuance.
If you have had no moving violations anywhere within the last 2 years and no major violations (i.e.: OWI, Driving While Suspended) or suspensions with the last 5, you probably qualify for the program. You do not need to contact the court for an application. Your ticket will automatically be processed and reviewed by the Prosecutor’s office to determine if you qualify.
If you do, information and paperwork will be sent to you. If you think you are interested and you think you qualify, you do not need to do anything. Simply wait to pay your ticket until you receive the information by mail and follow instructions at that time.
Please note: the deferral program is not free or nor does it lower cost. The fee for a Local Ordinance Violation or State Infraction Deferral is $252.50. For State Infractions contact the Boone County Prosecutor’s Office. For more information, click here.
